Is This the 2011 Portland Timbers Kit? [Leak]

Well, what do we have here? The guys over at the Soccer City USA boards have, as usual, been able to find a slight leak in the Timbers' usual sturdy security system as this would appear to be what's going to get revealed tomorrow for our 2011 kits.

While the picture is small, here are some interesting tidbits:

  1. Notice the crest used is the SECONDARY crest, not the primary. Very interesting if true and shows that the FO might be rethinking what's primary and what's secondary.
  2. The green coloring isn't as "forest" as we're used to, particularly when compared with last season's kit.
  3. Notice the rays shooting out of the crest. Perhaps a nod to our sunny history? Interesting, to say the least.
Overall, if this turns out to be true, I'll be happy. Sure I was hoping for something striped, but I don't hate this. In fact, I kind of like it, especially if the kit really is planned to use our secondary crest.

We'll know tomorrow if this leak is true or not, but, until then, gawk and comment all night long.

UPDATE: Various Timbers fans from both the Soccer City USA and BigSoccer.com forums are claiming that this is NOT the kit that will be unveiled tomorrow. Spicy!
